" The author s knowledge of and love for this region and era are clear, and the reader is definitely immersed in the atmosphere and culture of the time. I recommend this to anyone interested in China and also anyone who feels like reading an interesting and well-written tale of love, betrayal, war and difficult decisions.

My hope is to see the characters from the trilogy on a big screen as I think this would make excellent cinema.
I have rarely read a book more than once but I am sure I will return to all three of these books.
It left me with such a detailed vision of landscape, relationships, culture and adventure.
Nothing was missing from this book, over 500 pages but not unnecessarily wordy and it wrapped the trilogy of books up perfectly.
Up there with the best!
